Dec 25, 2009
Getting our tickets today was totally exciting as it sets our travel plans in motion.
After numerous calls to Aeroplan, we finally booked our flights for Dec. 25/08 to Vietnam. As we are using our Aeroplan miles we needed to call the Aeroplan center and that was quite an adventure. It reminds us of what travelling is all about. I am sure we spoke with at least 5 different agents and of course each one had different information. However, after hours on the phone waiting while someone was trying to find suitable flights, schedule, etc. we finally have our tickets and will be travelling Edmonton to Vancouver on Air Canada then Vancouver to Beijing on Air China. We will be spending 3 days in Beijing before continuing to Saigon. After such a lenghty flight it is kind of nice to stretch our legs a few days and one of Lucille's dreams was to visit the forbidden city and climb the wall of China. So we will be doing both during the three days in Beijing. We will then go to Saigon and spend a few days there to get visas in place for Cambodia where we will be spending January 2009 travelling.
